Patient Compliance And Its Effect On Oral Care

What happens in the dental chair only accounts for a small portion of oral care.  Patients play a large role in the overall health of their teeth and gums.  Compliance with health-related behaviors and recommendations is crucial to the overall effectiveness of a treatment program.

Patient noncompliance, which refers to non-adherence or only partial adherence to healthcare behaviors and recommendations, is a well-recognized problem, and it continues to be a major obstacle to appropriate care that ensures patients’ health and well-being.

In this course, we will delve into the various factors influencing noncompliance, effective interventions, and strategies for helping your patients achieve optimal outcomes.

This course will award 3 continuing education hours.
